Swelling had to be allowed to go down. They had him runnng steps recently so its possible that there is some kind of work he needs to put in prior to them operating. No idea but im guessing they arent doing anything that crazy.

Yeah I know,Its just strange.. Swelling had to go down,that true,but thats still big time frame to wait. Maybe he was doing some exercises because of muscles,but you lose muscles big time anyway after operation,so you need to work out as crazy when allowed after operation to get back to prior condition.

A freind of mind had the same type of injury and they had him in rehab even before the surgery. In a few months they have him back at playng soccer.

I believe they were busy processing our latest trade ideas and simply forgot about Duper.

There is some debate that early surgical repair can, in some cases, result in more range of motion deficits. If Dupuis had a meniscus tear, they might have gone to surgery sooner. But if not, this is just probably a conserative approach aimed at maximizing outcome.

I had this surgery after i tore my acl playing hockey. they made me wait a few months also so some other stuff in my knee cld heal. There are also new studies that show that significant increase in strength to surrounding muscles reduce atrophy and heal time, especially if a cadaver tendon is used. He prob had cadaver tendon vs a piece of his own patella tendon as the recovery time can be months less, most pros go with this.

FWIW, I went with patella, more tried and true method.

This is common practice for many knee procedures now. Doctors encourage some "Pre-hab" before surgery.

Very true. Orthopods really want the swelling down and strength up prior to surgery. Outcomes are much much better with this approach. This maximizes Active range of motion post aurgery and minimizes muscular atrophy especially in the quads.
